Thank You for Choosing Samsung
Thank you for choosing Samsung! Your new Samsung TV represents the latest in television
technology. We designed it with easy-to-use on-screen menus and closed captioning capabilities, making it one of the best products in its class. We are proud to offer you a product that

Important Safety Information
Always be careful when using your TV receiver. To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock,
and other injuries, keep these safety precautions in mind when installing, using, and
maintaining your machine.
• Read all safety and operating instructions before operating your TV.
• Keep the safety and operating instructions for future reference.
• Heed all warnings on the TV receiver and in the operating instructions.
• Follow all operating and use instructions.
• Unplug the TV receiver from the wall outlet before cleaning. Use a damp cloth; do not use
liquid or aerosol cleaners.
• Never add any attachments and/or equipment without approval of the manufacturer. Such
additions can increase the risk of fire, electric shock, or other personal injury.
• Do not use the TV receiver where contact with or immersion in water is a possibility, such as
near bath tubs, sinks, washing machines, swimming pools, etc.
• Do not place the TV on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or
table where it can fall. A falling TV can cause serious injury to a
child or adult, and serious damage to the appliance. Use only with
a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table recommended by the manufacturer or sold with the TV. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions when mounting the unit, and use a mounting accessory recommended by the manufacturer. Move the TV and cart with care.
Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces can make the
unit and cart unsteady and likely to overturn.
• Provide ventilation for the TV receiver. The unit is designed with
slots in the cabinet for ventilation to protect it from overheating. Do not block these openings
with any object, and do not place the TV receiver on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. Do not place it near a radiator or heat register. If you place the TV receiver on a rack or
bookcase, ensure that there is adequate ventilation and that you’ve followed the manufacturer’s instructions for mounting.
• Operate your TV receiver only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label.
If you are not sure of the type of power supplied to your home, consult your appliance dealer
or local power company.
• Use only a grounded or polarized outlet. For your safety, this TV is equipped with a polarized
alternating current line plug having one blade wider than the other. This plug will fit into the
power outlet only one way. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try
reversing the plug. If the plug still does not fit, contact your electrician to replace your outlet.
SAFETY
1
• Protect the power cord. Power supply cords should be routed so that they won’t be walked
on or pinched by objects placed on or against them. Pay particular attention to cords at
plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the unit.
• Unplug the TV from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system during a
lightning storm or when left unattended and unused for long periods of time. This will prevent damage to the unit due to lightning and power-line surges.
• Avoid overhead power lines. An outside antenna system should not be placed in the vicinity
of overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits or where it can fall into such
power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, be extremely careful to
keep from touching the power lines or circuits. Contact with such lines can be fatal.
• Do not overload the wall outlet or extension cords. Overloading can result in fire or electric
shock.
• Do not insert anything through the openings in the unit, where they can touch dangerous
voltage points or damage parts. Never spill liquid of any kind on the TV.
• Ground outdoor antennas. If an outside antenna or
cable system is connected to the TV, be sure the
antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide
some protection against voltage surges and built-up
static charges. Section 810 of the National Electrical
Code, ANSI/NFPA No.70-1984, provides information
about proper grounding of the mast and supporting
structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna
discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location
of antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding
electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode.

- if the TV does not operate normally by following the operating instructions
- if the TV has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged
- when the TV exhibits a distinct change in performance
• If you make adjustments yourself, adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions. Adjusting other controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the TV to normal.
• When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician uses replacement parts
specified by the manufacturer or those that have the same characteristics as the original part.
Unauthorized substitutions may result in additional damage to the unit.

Connecting VHF and UHF Antennas
If your antenna has a set of leads that
look like this, see “Antennas with
300-ohm Flat Twin Leads,” below.
If your antenna has one lead that looks
like this, see “Antennas with 75-ohm
Round Leads,” on page 2.2.
If you have two antennas, see “Separate
VHF and UHF Antennas,” on page 2.2.
Antennas with 300-ohm Flat Twin Leads
If you are using an off-air antenna (such as a roof antenna or “rabbit ears”) that has
300-ohm twin flat leads, follow the directions below.
1
Place the wires from the
twin leads under the
screws on a 300-75 ohm
adaptor (not supplied).
Use a screwdriver to
tighten the screws.
2
Plug the adaptor into the
TV ANTENNA terminal
on the bottom of the
back panel.
CHAPTER TWO: INSTALLATION
2.1
I N S TA L L AT I O N
Antennas with 75-ohm Round Leads
1
Plug the antenna lead
into the TV ANTENNA
terminal on the bottom
of the back panel.
Separate VHF and UHF Antennas
If you have two separate antennas for your TV (one VHF and one UHF), you must
combine the two antenna signals before connecting the antennas to the TV. This
procedure requires a an optional combiner-adaptor (available at most electronics shops).
1
Connect both antenna
leads to the combiner.
2
Plug the combiner
into the TV ANTENNA terminal on the

2
Connect the other end of
this cable to the TV
ANTENNA terminal on
the back of the TV.
Connecting to a Cable Box that Descrambles Some Channels
If your cable box descrambles only some channels (such as premium channels), follow the
instructions below. You will need a two-way splitter, an RF (A/B) switch, and four lengths of
coaxial cable. (These items are available at most electronics stores.)
Find and disconnect the
cable that is connected
to the ANTENNA IN
terminal on your
cable box.
This terminal might be labeled

Memorizing the Channels
Your TV can memorize and store all of the available channels for both “off-air” (antenna)
and cable channels. After the available channels are memorized, use the CH ▲ and

by entering the channel digits. There are three steps for memorizing channels: selecting a
broadcast source, memorizing the channels (automatic) and adding and deleting channels
(manual).
Selecting the Video Signal-source
Before your television can begin memorizing the available channels, you must specify the
type of signal source that is connected to the TV (i.e., an antenna or a cable system).

How to set the FV, D, L, S and V sub-ratings.

Next, while the TV-Rating is selected, repeatedly press the VOL+ button. This will cycle through the available sub-ratings (FV,L, S, D or V).
A blinking letter (“U” or “B”) will be displayed for each sub-rating. While the “U” or “B” is blinking, press

Press MENU once to save the TV guidelines. A TV-Rating will be selected, and no letters will blink. To exit
this screen, press the MENU button again. To select a different TV-Rating, press the CH ▲ or CH ▼ buttons
and then repeat the process.
Note: The V-chip will automatically block certain categories that are “More restrictive”. For example, if you

Press the MENU button three times to clear all the screens. (Or proceed to the next section, and set up

How to Set up Restrictions using the MPAA Ratings: G, PG, PG13, R, NC-17, X
The MPAA rating system uses the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) system, and
its main application is for movies. (Eventually, movie videocassettes will be encoded with
MPAA ratings.) When the V-Chip lock is on, the TV will automatically block any
programs that are coded with objectionable ratings (either MPAA or TV-Ratings).
